This week, some motivation from Tommy Caldwell’s TEdx Talk. Tommy will talk about his hardship and how he overcame his various life traumas to grow and succeed.
“Tommy Caldwell is a big-wall free climber, over 19 days in early 2015 he completed the first-ever free climb of the Dawn Wall at El Capitan. After being held hostage by militants in his early twenties in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan and then losing his index finger in an accident once back home, Tommy experienced a fair share of hardships before turning to big wall climbing. Tommy’s talk here raises an interesting question: why do some people experience post-traumatic growth? “
